A letter to..Lovely Handwritten Notes

I found this blog called: Lovely Handwritten  Notes on tumblr.
So I thought why not write to this person who lives in the snow of D.C. 
Since I have a P.O.Box its safe.
Remember I'm trying to do 52 new things in this year so this is stepping out of the box and handwritting a letter to a stranger.
I decided to use that easy stamp that makes a pretty card and gets my craft on.
I added the hearts well, to tell you the truth, its covering up a mistake of some bad flowers.  But, I think it looks good.  It's still the month of Feb. its heart month.
The blue bird gives it the out doors look...hahaha.

I also found another man who is writing a letter a day for the whole year.  I'm going to send him a card too.
I know I should just write to my own friends!

Feb.2015 Photo-A-Day..let me show you what I have done!

Feb.1: On my plate
This is what I had to eat while I watched the 
Super Bowl Game. 
This is my ugly mail box with mail that needs to go back to sender.
This is in front of the cemetery where some of my friends call home. 
This is my locker at work and my bestest buddy came back to leave some of us notes and I got mine right on my locker.  I was so excited! 
Feb.5:something blue
Some of my favorite things. Yes, that is my cell phone.
I would love to stay at this amazing hotel.

Feb.8:In my bag
Remember when I found this at the county fair. 
It takes alot of energy to walk 3 miles a day but, I am doing it! 
Feb.10:This inspires me
These are my favorite craft tool. You can see I have used them for ever! 
Feb.11: On the wall
can't go wrong with some great art. 
I love this picture.
I started with one of my plants and then found these. 
Girl Scout cookies, these only come out once a year and how can you say no? 
This was fun to make.
But I think I put up the three bottles of Coke with my kids names on them.
Oh well. 
My parking spot, not my favorite spot but, its all mine. 
Feb.16:From where I stand
A girl can never have enough Almay.
I always have fun making my eyes look amazing! 
Every day I text my daughter "Good Morning" with a little fun or haha along with it.
You can also see I read Oprah too.

I had fun looking for these photo's, I'm getting better at finding things with every week that passes.
It's going to be Thursday, a week goes fast with Monday being a holiday and taking off Tuesday because it was needed!
Thanks for stopping by.

Letter writing...a lost art

I found a guy named Reed Sandridge who is writing a letter everyday.
I know how did I find him??
WEll, I was looking on blogs to find how to write a good letter and stumbled across this one blog that he had left a comment and so I wrote him a letter.
I know I'm strange but, that is who I am.
That's a lot of stamps and thinking about what to write.
I hope he gets it done. I work so many hours that it is not something I could do right now.
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone?
  You can always write to me
       Myra H
       P.O. Box 3471
       Cerritos, CA 90703
I had a great day off, I did what I wanted to do..nothing.
SO I'm off to sleep to start another long week..well not so long!!

These are my next Photo-A-Day that I need to do..wanna try too?

These look hard this week!
This is what I try to do every day..some days are easier then others!..can you see why??

Happy Valentines Day 2015

Happy Valentines Day!
I made this from a thin metal tin, you can use chalk to write on it.  But, sine I put this out on my friends grave I used white nail polish.

I have the best daughter ever. She went outside after I went to bed to pick these from my only rose bush.
When I woke up I could smell roses and found them on the kitchen excited.

Got a little crafty here.
I found these..lets call them french fry Michael's.  I bought "happy valentine " ribbon and some heart spongy stickers and put these together, then put in some candy.
I think my kids were only excited about finding out what kind of candy they got.  It really holds alot of candy. 
My kitchen table.
I also bought them some fun gifts.
I got Princess P a Bose speaker that is that cool teal color, Danger D got wheels for his long board and Special K got a controler for his playstation. They were all excited.  
Somehow I always make Valentine gifts better then xmas.
On the left you can see the metal heart container, I'm going to put a light in it when it gets dark and light up my table.

I have today off, only because I wanted yesterday off and like always didn't get it off. So I had to beg for today off and it!
It's a really pretty day here, I'm going to go take a walk, day 14 for this exercise program..shhh don't tell anyone but it looks like I have 7 pounds off so far...yeah!
I also have Monday off for Presidents Day. I hope to get some crafting done along with some reading.  I've been listen to a "playaway" and it stopped working so, now I want to know what happen at the end of the story, got the book from the library.
I have a friend who is doing a Wrecked Journal..I'm going to look for one of those, it looks like fun.  Maybe Princess P will do a few pages with me.
I have been doing pretty good with my Photo-A-Day, I just need to put them up here so you can see them too.  On the group that I join on FB there is a host that picks top 5 pictures of the day and I want to be one of them so bad.  So I try so hard to get a good shot that isn't
Lets see if I can get things done.
Have a great Valentine's Day.

Zucchini Bread..not bad

 My first try at "Zucchini Bread".
I don't have a very good way of putting my cook book together so a little note book is how it goes.

I have never grated a zucchini, it wasn't to hard.
2 cups  
one cup of chopped walnuts. 
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 cup white sugar
3 tsp. vanilla

I missed the other bowl.
1st. bowl: Swift flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
2nd bowl: beat eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar 
add 1st bowl to 2nd bowl, then stir in zucchini and walnuts.
 Two 8 X 4 pans...I used what I had, they weren't this size.
grease the  pans and add some flour
Heat oven to 325 
Evenly add batter to pans.
My very used and not clean oven.
I put these on my cookies sheet so the bottom wouldn't burn.
BAKE 40-60 min's.

Look how beautiful they turned out!
So proud of myself.
It's really good, even my kids liked it.
I love this plate, I've had the whole set since I started my hope chest in 1981..I used them for awhile then, put them away because you can't put them in the microwave and thats all I needed was my kids to see these dishes spark!

Week 6th for Photo-A-Day 2015

I found this great Photo-A-Day you can see what I am trying to do.
I did awful last month, but hopefully, even with lots of hours at work I will be able to do better this month.
Today Feb. 1st. is "On my plate", since its Super Bowl Sunday I have a foot ball plate with a grilled cheese sandwich and Black berries.  Somehow this computer doesn't want me to put it on my blog so when I get some help I will add it here.
I also did some baking today that I would love to share!
Have a great Sunday!
